Russia stands out for its colourful history and beautiful palatial architecture. I recommend a vodka tasting, as well as seeing the majesty of the Bolshoi ballet one evening.

Why We Love Russia

From

Molly

History

Knowing where to start with Russian history can be overwhelming. With the right guide, you can return home a dinner party expert on Cold War, Revolution, the rise and fall of Communism and Stalin. The country’s leading cities are awash with evidence of the country’s past and makes for the perfect setting to let yourself be transported to a different time.

Architecture

Russian architecture reflects the country’s extraordinary history. Our favourite is Saint Basil’s Cathedral, a worthy cover of most Russian guide books. The masterpiece was built by Ivan the Terrible, who later supposedly murdered the architect to prevent him creating anything more beautiful in the future.

Food and Vodka

Russia is not vying for the gastronomy title of Europe but a visit to the country will undoubtedly have you sample some curious national dishes sure to surprise you. All washed down with (without slipping into generalisations), vodka. The drink is prevalent and in the winter it is a helpful extra jumper for the cold.

Museums and Ballet

Perhaps one of the country’s biggest accolades is its phenomenal ballet school and stars. The Bolshoi sells out annually and people rarely regret a visit to the theatre in the Russian capital.
